In April 2019, the popular social planning and e-invitation website, Evite, became aware of possible unauthorized activity on their systems. After an investigation concluding in May, they determined that since February of 2019 a hacker had obtained the names, usernames, email addresses and passwords of customers, and if the customers had provided them, their birthdays, phone numbers and mailing addresses. The hacker posted this information as for sale on the dark web. Social security numbers and payment information were not included in the attack as the site does not collect social security numbers and a third party vendor handles the sites financial transactions.

Almost 200 and email address were included in this breach. If your email is part of this attack, Evite will contact you and will prompt you to change your password on your next login. More information regarding the actions the company has taken can be found on their FAQ page regarding the data breach.
